Even thousand miles have to start with one step. The first step has been taken place at Doordarshan Kendra, Hyderabad on 22nd October. Twelve associations of Prasar Bharati Employees have decided to form a federation to fight for their legitimate demand of Pay Scales as granted to certain categories of employees working in Prasar Bharati. Delegates from Camera Men Welfare Association, Stenographers Association, Administrative Staff Association, Group D Union, Drivers Association, Carpenters & Painters Association, Rajbhasha Employees Association, Makeup men Association, Graphic Artists Association, Video Editors Association, News Casters Association and Library Information Assistants Association have participated in the meeting. Grup D Union has already extended support to the FPBE (Federation of Prasar Bharati Employees) at National level and Camera Men Welfare Association and Drivers Association have extended its support. Other Associations are getting ready for new equations and Aakashvani Announcers Association Rajsthan Zone has announced that they have withdrawn support to NFADE and expressed their willingness to join the FPBE. All the delegates have decided to strengthen the federation at National level to show their strength of 20,000 employees working for Prasar Bharati. The delegates have objected the words of certain associations who are demanding to repeal Prasar Bharati are creating rumors that the future of Prasar Bharati is in doldrums. The delegates said it is a surprise that the employees who are benefited from corporation and enjoying higher scales on the name of Prasar Bharati, are now demanding for repeal Prasar Bharati. All the delegates have decided to extend all sorts of co-operation to the government and extend their support for continuation of Prasar Bharati.


  1. This is an appropriate and historical move to form FPBE. I want to congratulate all the member Associations and assure that all the state units of Akashvani Announcers Association will join this very soon.

  2. Arjun Singh ji warm welcome to Announcers Association to Federation of Prasaar Bharati Employees. There is every need of unity in the left over categories and we have to fight unitedly on several issues.
